Lunar New Year 2023: The Year of the Rabbit

 

What Is the Lunar New Year?

Lunar New Year (also known as Chinese New Year) happens this year on Sunday, January 22, 2023. Why does the Lunar New Year start at a different time each year? How is this important holiday celebrated? What does the Year of the Rabbit symbolize? Learn all about this holiday!

When Is Lunar New Year?

Lunar New Year begins on the date (in East Asia) of the second new Moon after the winter solstice, which always takes place in late December. This means that the first day of the Lunar New Year can occur anytime between January 21 and February 20.

In 2023, this new Moon occurs in China on Sunday, January 22, marking the start of a new lunar year.

Mercury is now Direct. Moon is new on January 21st

 

Winter is here!   Mercury turned Direct  January 18th 2023                                    New Moon is on Jan 21, 2023

Mercury is now Direct.  Moon is new on January 21st.  Chinese New Year is pending… Spring is on the way… It is Time to begin again!!

 

Al Manning, founder of the ESP LAB, used to say, “What’s new?  Me!  I am always new and exciting.”  This dovetails with an affirmation from Dr. Al Fann, the actor who ran the Institute for Higher Mind—which was down the street from the ESP Lab in Hollywood when I lived there in the late 1970’s.  Al Fann would say, “I am unique, wonderful and extremely exciting!” Point is, that these positive attitudes can lead you to a better day and a more successful life.

We made it through another year! Huzzah!! Mercury is Retro on the Full Moon as we start the New Year!

By Sami MERLYN, DD 

                                            Winter is here!   Mercury turned Retrograde Dec 29th, 2022                                  FULL MOON in Cancer, Jan 06, 2023

I am happy to say that despite whatever challenges, the ESP LAB and I made it through the past year! Huzzah! Huzzah.  It was a year of the tiger which some say is a vicious year.  2023 is the year of the Water Rabbit, which starts on the Chinese New Moon of January 22nd, 2023 (Chinese New Year), and ending on February 9th, 2024 (Chinese New Year’s Eve). The softer sign of the bunny is a symbol of peace, prosperity, and longevity… along with fertility.  Let it be a better year for all of us.  2023 is predicted to be a year of hope.

Mercury Retrograde Dates for 2023

winter mercury retro full moon Jan23

What Is Mercury Retrograde and What Does It Mean for You?

Mercury enters retrograde motion starting on December 28, 2022, and lasting into the new year! According to the age-old practice of astrology, we are all influenced by the effect of Mercury in retrograde. What exactly does it mean for each of us, though? Read on to find out.

What Is “Mercury Retrograde”?

Three times a year, the planet Mercury appears to travel backward across the sky. We refer to these periods as times when Mercury is in apparent retrograde motion, or simply ”Mercury retrograde.” To those who practice astrology, these times in particular were traditionally associated with confusion, delay, and frustration.

“Mercury Retro on the FULL MOON as we approach Fall Equinox!”

Fall is near!   Sun enters Libra Sept 22, 2022!                                                                  FULL MOON in Pisces, September 10, 2022   

The planet Mercury– which rules the mind, communication, business, & transportation– has gone on another vacation and this one lasts from September 9th to October 2nd, 2022.  Mercury is Retrograde approximately 20% of the time.  I have moved into plod mode for this term, and suggest that you do the same!  It takes patience and perseverance, but you can do it! We can do it!!  We can get through this! As Al Manning would say, “This too shall pass.”

 

     Right after Mercury went Retro, the Moon was full in the sensitive and fertile sign of Pisces.  Full moons are always good times to make a wish.

Fall Equinox Newsletter

 

Celebrate the Cycle of Life,

 

The Fall Equinox is the second of the three major harvest festivals. The Celtic name for it is Mabon: the season of storing food and preserving nature’s bounty for the coming winter months. This year it will be on September 22nd at 6:04 pm PDT just as the sun enters Libra, the sign of the balancing scales. The term Equinox refers to this balance of day and night. Fall is the time of plants shedding their seeds, going underground until new plants rise up in the Spring 

 

In ancient Greek and Roman traditions, during the Fall Equinox the Grain Goddess Demeter was honored. Originally, she was a triad: the Maiden (Kore or Persephone), Mother (Demeter), and Crone (Hecate) in the Pantheon that predated the Olympian myths.

The last supermoon of the year ‘sturgeon moon’ is here

People across the world will be able to view the last supermoon of the year on Thursday and Friday. A “sturgeon moon,” as it is referred to in August, occurs when the moon is at its fullest during a time when it is also closest to the Earth, making it appear larger and brighter in the sky. Keep it here for images and updates.

If you haven’t seen a supermoon yet, Thursday night is your last chance in 2022!

For the fourth and final time this year, the supermoon, also known as the Spurgeon moon, will occur at 9:36 p.m. EDT (6:36 p.m. PDT) — and the next one won’t happen until June 14, 2023.

What’s next? Turn to the LIGHT!

 

Wow, with the past lunar cycle of a Solar eclipse on the new moon, a complete Lunar eclipse on the full moon with Mercury Retrograde, we can wonder what will befall us next? The celestial influences have been especially challenging with plenty of strong Mars’ action (as it squares the moon– temper tantrums and wars), with Pluto squaring the moon and Venus (explosive heart breaking emotionalism– that can be linked to death).

     We have each had our share of challenges as we plodded through the confusion and delays of Mercury Retrograde, with all the rest. And the good news is “this too shall pass.” Mercury will go direct soon on June 3rd, and it will be good to put it and the eclipses behind us.

Celebrate Midsummer my friends,

June 21st is the Summer Solstice this year as the Sun enters the sign of Cancer. Also known as Midsummer, it is one of the eight great spokes on the Celtic wheel of the seasons. The Solstice (meaning sun stands still) is universally recognized in all cultures as an important turning point—it is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. Sun energy is at its peak and we feel its primal creative force.  

Midsummer’s Eve is one of the three important spirit nights of the year; the other two are Beltane (May Day) and Samhain (Halloween). When the veils are thinnest between the worlds, we can communicate with the spirit world more easily.

Fall Equinox: Treasure the Change,

 

The Fall Equinox is the second of the three major harvest festivals. The Celtic name is Mabon: the season of storing food and preserving nature’s bounty for the coming winter months. This year it will be on September 22nd at 3:21 pm Pacific as the sun enters Libra, the sign of the balancing scales. The term Equinox refers to balance, with day and night roughly equal at the equator.  

 

It is difficult to imagine balance during these turbulent times where inequities abound as we uncover the deep roots of racism, sexism, and severe poverty in a country of great wealth, most of which is in the hands of a small percentage at the top of the pyramid.
